I have a new post up on my sustainable food and bicycling blog, Will Bike for Change (or Pie!). It is on the DC Grey Farmers' Market, and why it's both Important and a whole lot of fun.
The most popular parties are those that seem the most difficult to get into. The line out the door, the person looking at your ID, and the check to ensure that you’re on the list – these are the hallmarks of an exclusive event. Which is why I was surprised and pleased to see these all happening at the DC Grey Farmers Market two weeks ago. Which is not actually to say the DC Grey Market is exclusionary – quite the opposite. You see, the key word in that sentence is “seems.” The DC Grey Market was actually a lovely mix of scenesters who were unabashedly excited about the concept and a celebration of all food handmade and non-industrial.
